Summary of Changes from Previous Version

Following amendments to the Working with Children (Risk Management and Screening) Act 2000 (Qld), effective 31 August 2020, the Child Safe Environment Policy has been amended in order to ensure compliance with legislative requirements, with the insertion of new clause 12(c). This clause requires staff who hold a WWCC, Blue Card, or State or Territory equivalent to notify the agency responsible for issuing the clearance, of any changes in their police information, including being charged with a serious or disqualifying offence as defined in the Child Protection (Working with Children) Act 2012 (NSW) - Schedule 2, the Working with Children (Risk Management and Screening) Act 2000 (Qld), or State or Territory based equivalent.
